The gift of life

Take a couple of minutes to read this beautiful story of a mother, Lorraine Allard, who sacrificed chemotherapy for herself in order to give her unborn son a better chance at life. I know a couple of people personally who have been in similar situations, and I'm sure that little Liam Allard's life will be a blessing to so many others.

Lorraine's husband, Martyn, is quoted as saying: "Lorraine was positive all the way through. She had strength for both of us. I can't begin to describe how brave she was. Towards the end we knew things weren't going well, but she was overjoyed that she had given life to Liam."
